Tax exempt groups

October 25, 2012

It was interesting to read that Sullivan County legislators and supervisors are frustrated by the number of properties exempted from property and school taxes. No one was frustrated when the Monticello Motor Track in the year 2011 received a $3-million tax exemption—$1,081,550 in school taxes, $527,800 plus $1,635,300 in town and county taxes.

The Monticello Motor Club is not a veterans’, religious, educational, seniors’, or cultural group.

Explain the need for the Monticello Motor Track exemption to the Sullivan County tax paying residents.

What other group received this privilege?
